Photographs taken by astronauts aboard NASA space vehicles.
Photos like this are extraordinarily difficult to shoot, and therefore quite rare.
The combination of 1) low light, 2) the International Space Station moving
5 miles/second, 3) a powerful zoom lens, and 4) a handheld, weightless
camera make it very difficult to shoot a photo that isn’t smeared at all.
Pleasure boats have plenty of room to navigate on a calm weekday shortly before Memorial Day. It
will be a very different picture in two weeks, after the traditional start of the summer tourist season.
